Hot Courts  


Date:            Every Thursday evening
Time:           Drop-in (play continues from 6:30-9:30 pm)
Location:     Montclair Courts, Oakland (Mountain at Colton)
Cost:            $2 donation requested
Organizers :   Hans Boerner and Kenny Goodman
 
 
 
 
Hot Courts happen every Thursday evening, year-round.  Simply stop by anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (no partner needed) for some casual and fun doubles tennis.
 
The exact format varies, but generally consists of four no-ad games followed by a tiebreaker, after which those who had a bye on the previous round are brought in, partners and opponents are switched up, and play begins again.
 
The cost is only $2.00 per evening, which goes to help defray the costs of court maintenance and repair (nets, windscreens, etc.).
 
Join us!         
 


 

Watergate Mixer 2017                              
                    

Date:              Saturday August  12th
Time:              11:00 am to 2:00 pm
Location:        Watergate Condominiums, Emeryville
Cost:               $12 per person, $15 for non MTA member
Organizers :    Marty Gutherz 


The long anticipated 2017 mixer with those great folks at the Watergate Condominiums is scheduled for August 12th, and as this has always been a very popular event, I strongly recommend that you don’t procrastinate in registering for this event that will assuredly include terrific social tennis, conviviality, merriment, plus appetizing food and thirst quenching potions, all for the meager registration fee of $12.00 ($15 for non-members).

In order to allay the anxieties of those of you who may be leery about ven-turing into a place named Watergate, please be advised that the Watergate Con-dominiums have no connection to the infamous incident known as the Watergate Break-In, and is a certified Nixon operatives free zone. 

In addition, as the welcoming banners located in strategic Watergate locations proudly proclaim, “What Happens in Emeryville Stays in Emeryville.” So, any brazenly uninhibited displays of behavior by any of the event participants will remain strictly confidential
